Trump is making the case that a person can get the death penalty or life in prison for shooting a single person, but a drug dealer can kill thousands and spend little or no time in jail. Trump asked. "The only way to solve the drug problem is through toughness".

"I think it's a discussion we have to start thinking about", Trump said during the rally in Moon Township. "Now, I never did polling on that - I don't know if that's popular, I don't know if that's unpopular".

Many in the crowd who waited for hours didn't live in the 18th District, but they wanted to show support for the president and his policies. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen.

He said he would welcome a battle against another television celebrity who has been a fantasy candidate for Democrats: Oprah Winfrey.

Midway through the rally, Trump hinted that he may not run for reelection, yet he rolled out a new campaign slogan ("Keep America Great!") and took repeated swings at potential 2020 Democratic challengers, including Sen.

Trump said he thinks the North wants to have peace. "I know her weakness".

She also says the president "recognizes that manufacturing and steel belong in America and in Pennsylvania".

He also said he deserved praise for the success of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. "It's true, true. You know".

Warriors navigate rash of injuries
Portland went on an 8-0 run to push the lead to 41-27, but Golden State got within 52-50 on Kevon Looney's follow shot. Back in 2010, Curry needed surgery to fix the ligaments after rolling his ankle multiple times during the season.

His comments come days after the White House confirmed Trump will meet face-to-face with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He also went after Rep. Maxine Waters, calling the California Democrat - who has called for Trump's impeachment - a "low-IQ individual". "After the meeting, you may do that, but let's see what happens".

He criticized Ronald Reagan on trade, referring to him as a "great cheerleader for the country but not great on the trade", and said the United States "used to be a nation of tariffs".

And while Trump won the region by almost 20 points little more than a year ago, polls now suggest that the Republican and Democrat are essentially tied.

But his refusal to state his position on a national right-to-work law and willingness to speak about the policy's merits so soon before Tuesday's election illustrates a major challenge he faces in a district with a high rate of union membership.

Saccone and his Democratic opponent, first-time candidate Conor Lamb, are neck-and-neck in the latest polls.

President Trump's slogan reveal occurred tonight at a rally ahead of Pennsylvania's Tuesday's special congressional election between Republican Rick Saccone and Democrat Connor Lamb. "That's it", Trump told the crowd. "And this guy can really help me: Rick Saccone". But Lamb also supports the duties, so the issue isn't as effective a wedge for Saccone and Trump as it might otherwise be. He's a vocal supporter of Trump's plan to implement tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum, and the Republicans' 2017 Tax Act, which, perhaps most notably, slashed the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35%.

Last month, Trump showed up at the Conservative Political Action Conference and gave an unscripted 75-minute address in which he attacked Democrats, mocked Sen. The move came just days before his expected rally on Saturday in the heart of steel country.

The President's moves on tariffs this week were, in part, created to gin up support for Saccone; Trump has told associates that he hopes the tariffs will play well with his base, including voters in Pennsylvania 18th District around Pittsburgh and in the heart of America's steel industry.
